ARE ORGANIZED; (continued from page 3) j passed declaring the club established.: Only one nomination was made for | president, vice and secretary' ami Temporary Secretary' James cast the ballot for each, except for himself. When it came to the nomination for; a treasurer a spicy little moment was, provided. With that ‘‘cut and dried insinuation in mind, no doubt, Jack Finnegan nominated Button for the onerous duties. Green nominated the secretary and someone else nominated Romig, but the chair ruled that the secretary could not be treasurer ami Dr. Romig declined so that when But ton was nominated and declared elect ed it looked as if honor were being forced on him intentionally. “I said it came to my ears that this meeting was cut and dried”, said Button in his speech of acknowledgement “and I’m darned if l don’t believe so now more than ever.” Mr. Button proceeded by say ing that he was “not a speech maker but a second hand dealer. Then he told a pretty and touching little story that seems to lose little by age, especially in the hands of a man who has brought down to a science the trick of making second hand things look new. Rev. Mr. Cook, seemed to enjoy the story immensely —nit Mr. Button wound up by mov ing that a collection should b* taken up to pay for the hall. “I want to get a hold of some money” quoth he. “Thus spoke a true Re publican” said Finnegan. Mr. Button certainly tickled the meeting and he might be compared to the month of March which comes in like a lion ami goes out like a lamb. That brings to mind the fact that the other officers made speeches. President Sloan said his election gave him a chance to make a speech and it was too good a chance to throw down. “As long as I am | president of this club its work will be straight and above board,” he declar ed and he continued with some elo quence to show how proud he was of being a Republican ami how he ab horred anything in the shape of a “Republican with an adjective.” Vice President Bruner, who was nominat ed by a clannish Nomeite named J. P. Badger, expressed perfect confi dence tliat the Republican party was in sight of victory. He advised the local Republicans to keep organized as nothing is possible without organi zation. *T look for Alaska to get a full territorial form of government said he “not a commission form or statehood.” EMPRESSTHEATRE Sunday, Dec. 19, 8:15 p. m.

PRICES ARE RIGHT and goods are of the BEST MAKES, Guaranteed by the manufacturers and GEORGE A. MIRLACH “Now* we’ll have the speech of the evening” said the president and all eyes sought the blushing secretary. “I won’t be kidded into making a speech” said Secretary James but “sw’earing he would ne’er consent, consented” and he launched into a fluent expression of the conviction that the club “will stand for clean Republicanism and not cliquism.” It was then decided to call a meet ing for Monday, Dccmber 27, at w'hich the committee on bye law's and con stitution will present its report. The chair appointed on that committee Judge Finnegan Vice-President Brun er and Secretary James. To finish as the story began, it can be said that the meeting w-as a really successful one and all present mani fested a really serious desire to get down to business. Take warning, ye Democrats.
